Blue Holidays Quilt-Along Day 3

Walking in a Winter Wonderland...
Sew a wintry lap quilt in gorgeous blue and silver holiday prints!

We'll be spending the next two weeks sharing the Blue Holidays Quilt-Along with you! This cozy lap quilt features our wintry Blue Holidays collection--perfect to use all winter long! 

Follow along as we reveal the quilt row by row and make it yourself to snuggle under all winter long. The finished quilt measures 60" x 68" and features five different pieced blocks. 

Today we're sharing the tutorial for Star Block #2. You'll need four to make a complete row. We used a directional print in the block, so orient your pieces carefully!

Make the Blocks:

Step 1 Cut (1) 5-1/4” White Filigree square and (1) 5-1/4” Blue Stripe square diagonally in half twice to make quarter-square triangles (QST).Blue Holidays Star Block #2 

Step 2 Referring to the photo for placement, sew the short edge of (1) White Filigree QST to the short edge of (1) Blue Stripe QST. Make (4). Note that the Blue Stripe is directional, so you’ll have two sets of pieced triangles—one set with the stripes running horizontally, and one set with stripes running vertically.
